That's a great deal that you got Ron. Too bad that you didn't the Storytime, or the Fireworks perferred viewing, but it still sounds like a really good deal. As for my sad story, I'm starting physio for my crash injuries, as they have not healed and are getting worse. DS 9 is probably going to be getting the same treatment, once we get him checked out by out doc next week. My van was written off (not a surprise, as we were expecting it, due to it's age). The insurance co is hinting at a cash settlement for my injuries, but I won't even discuss it with them until I'm fully healed from the crash. So we'll see how that goes. If I get a small settlement, it may mean that the 2015 trip is on, but won't know till later in the year, what's going on with it. Have a great trip Ron!!!

That is a good get. We are doing Shula's this trip as well. My youngest dd loves steak and I'm going for the lobster, but will have to taste her filet as well.

Are you going for the 4lb Maine lobster or the Australian lobster tail

Yet another thing coming to MK that may have something to collect, in the Spring they are starting a Pirate interactive game called Treasures of the Seven Seas, guess we will see in a couple months what it is all about, since it has to do with Pirates my son will like it

I'm going for steak, but I have a question about the super large steak. . . is it impossible for like, really hungry men? I mean they don't have to be professional eaters to take it right? Also, what's the "prize" for successfully eating it all?

Thanks Ron for the AAA phone number! I got Storytime booked for them, but there weren't any spaces left for fireworks. I really think it sucks that you have to book the full dining plan with AAA for Storytime.... so unless there's free dining for my Dec trip I won't be booking it thru them.
But then again this trip because we're taking Mudducks 1 1/2, (the adopted kids & their 4 children) we're probably staying off-site condo for 2 weeks, so we'll just have to see what deals come down the pipe

The 4lb Porterhouse steak at $90, I love my steak, but I don't know if I could finish it (might have to fast a couple days),but even with a bone, your probably looking at 2.5 to 3.25 lbs of meat (depending on how big the bone is), There is sort of a prize if you finish it, you get put on the internet on Shula's hall of fame page.

I did finish the 32oz Prime rib, I was really surprised it had no bone, and the trim fat might have been a once or two, I finished before my wife was done with her crab cakes that were also huge, we both rolled out of there, you definitely will not go hungary there, but be warned when ordering everything is Steakhouse portions, so they are huge, the baked potato is a mini football

Although I didn't get Storytime etc, I still paid $125 less then if I booked through Disney, so it wasn't a huge loss

Ok, thanks. I think I am going to go with the New York strip. I was just wondering for hunny as he is a foodie and that steak might catch his eye, lol. We are definitely sharing the sides.

They do have a 12 ounce filet. I'll order that for youngest dd and eat 1/4 of it. Funny, as a child, I was only allowed to order hamburger and then as I got older, the most expensive cut I could order was sirloin. Now, my 8 year gets filet mignon.

That's going to be one expensive dinner, are you sharing the lobster with your wife, or are you going to tackle it on your own, I'm curious on how much the lobster would cost, (it's gotta be around $100)

What! no postings on this thread for 3 days? I'll have to break that one with a question.

So I'm trying to do this touring plan for the friends...and my two "go to" apps are Undercovertourist free app, and touringplans.com (paid subscription) and in the world I use the Disney official app for lines.
So for those "techie" commandos which apps are you using & why?

My original plan was to knock that out by myself. However, we booked for Easter Sunday, which is a blackout date on TiW. Somehow, I could justify the $80 for the lobster but not sure if I can for the $100.
